POA Decision – 2000/10/18-04 – Consolidation of Agricultural Operations Policies in the Prevention Manual

The Panel of Administrators approved the consolidation of the Agricultural Operations policies from the Prevention Division Policy and Procedure Manual into the new Prevention Manual. The affected policies are Policies No. 70.0.0 – 70.156, except Policies No., and which are still being worked on by the Policy and Regulation Development Bureau. The effective date for the consolidated policies is December 1, 2000. On that date the consolidated policies became "published policy" and Policies No. 70.0.0 – 70.156 (except Policies No., and ceased to be "published policy". The consolidated policies appear in the new Manual format. They continue the substantive requirements of the Policy and Procedure Manual policies, as those requirements existed prior to December 1, 2000, with any wording changes necessary to reflect legislative and regulatory changes since the Policy and Procedure Manual policies were issued. The consolidation of the Agricultural Operations policies is part of a larger project that will eventually result in all prevention policies being consolidated into the new Prevention Manual or repealed or retired as appropriate.
